Janet Kuypers performed an impromptu feature at "the Cafe" in Chicago 10/20/09, by reading her short story "crazy". With props of a blanket (for making a mock bed for the patient in the insanity hospital ward) a t-shirt and karate pants (that work well in this case for inmate pants), a desk lamp and a deck of cards (so "Madeline," the main character, could play Solitaire while giving her monologue for the story), Janet Kuypers read this story to a live audience.

This is the full camera show of Janet Kuypers performing poetry at the Palos Park Public Library October 7th 2009 (10/07/09). Because she used to live 5 blocks away from this library, she had to come back for this show... And although there were 3 older poems read at this show, most of the poems were new. The poems Kuypers read include "aim carefully", "carrying me through", "eternal struggle", "let me be", "looking for a worthy adversary",...
